Ring-tailed Lemur
(catta lemur)

It is a large prosimian, a lemur belonging to the family Lemuridae. The Ring-tailed Lemur is the only species within the genus Lemur and, like all other lemurs, is found only on the island of Madagascar.

Although threatened by habitat destruction and therefore listed as vulnerable by the IUCN Red List, the Ring-tailed Lemur is the most populous lemur in zoos worldwide; they reproduce readily in captivity.

Hi andrea, Is it the same one form one of your old photos?
It is beautirul like that one. Good coloures and POV. fantstic animal, and good shot.

Hello Andrea,
wonderful shot of this Lemur, I like the composition a lot. POV, colors and details are wonderful. Maybe a bid too much back ground noise, possible from sharpening. I tried a work shop to eliminate the noise, hope you don't mind.

Unusual subject (for us Africans anyway) and well caught pose. Good compo and colours.

bonjour andrea
j'aime bien cette photo de lemurien avec sa queue dressée,j'ai vu un reportage sur cette espece a la television et ils ont l'air tres turbulents.

I love this fellows, the expresion you got in the shot is lovely. You have very nice lights and details.
Contrast and colour saturation are a bit heavy, but of course that is a personal taste.
